with the geico mobile app. >>> more than half of the u.s. senate writing a letter to president obama today urging him to sign off on the keystone pipeline. i guess we can't expect the president is going to approve it any time soon, despite the promise of thousands of new jobs, a move towards energy independence and national security. the president's already blocked it twice. me, i say drill, drill, drill. and on top of that, i say pipeline, pipeline, pipeline. but let's discuss, we bring in the director of public citizens energy program and the competitive enterprise institute. you got yourself 53 senators, you got yourself refiners in the gulf coast and texs that will help every american driver, how can you possibly block this? >> first of all, it's not going to result in lower gas prices. it's going to accelerate the rate of gas loon and diesel, ports, and, secondary, this doesn't do anything for national energy independence or security. an alarm lig increasing amount of the canadian tar stands is being invested in and controlled by chinese natural interests. by 2020, they'll control production
obama's agenda, and senate democrats i think are sick of this. senator tom harkin of iowa said on my radio show today without meaningful filibuster reform, it could be a rough second term for president obama. >> i said to obama one time we were in iowa, the night before the election, he was in iowa, the night before the election, i said to him, i said, look, i want some of your time after the election. he said sure, what about? filibuster. i said you get reelected, if you get reelected and we don't change the filibuster rules in the senate, you might as well take a four-year vacation, because you won't get anything done. >> senator harkin also told me about the so-called 41 rule that would require 41 republicans to vote in order to maintain a filibuster instead of requiring the majority party to find 60 votes to break one. folks, 60 votes, it isn't going to happen in the senate. not in this political climate. senator reid had included the 41 rule in his proposal, but politico reported late tonight he dropped the rule after talks with mcconnell. now, this is just coming to me right no
, and to have this opportunity to join with senator warren and senator mccain in introducing president obama's nominee to be the next secretary of state. i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy, and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we have heard from both the chairman and the ranking member and just now senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on first as that young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership, and as we work to implement the accountability board's recommendations, he's committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people in posts around the world. working toge
ahead, senator feinstein introduces a new assault weapons ban in front of a massive display of guns ten years after writing the original ban. what are the chances this one will pass? >>> this hour, president obama makes another big nomination and it is a woman. it comes at the time, of course, when some criticized a lack of diversity in the president's cabin cabinet. live coverage of the announcement and join our conversation on twitter, you can find us. ...so as you can see, geico's customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your mo
exchanges occurred after a republican senator ask why it took the obama administration so long to determine the assault was actually not the result of any spontaneous protest. here is secretary clinton's response to that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> whether it was because after protest or because of guys out for a walk one night decided they would go kill some americans, what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. martha: that was the most heated moment of the proceedings yesterday. joined by wyoming republican senator john barrasso, who was there who also questioned senator clinton. secretary of state clinton yesterday. he is on the senate foreign relations committee. welcome, good to have you here. >> thank you, martha. martha: why you surprised by that reaction? >> i was because it really does make a difference. it makes a difference to the american people. i would imagine it makes a big difference to the press and o
president obama in 2006 when he was a senator. he was visiting baghdad. >> you mentioned that. >> and i got to ask my question so i say, mr. president, this is the second time i met you. did i ask the hardball question, drones, civil liberties? no, i did not. i guess i'm not at liberty to say what i asked about but it was soft. >> typical. thank you for the admission. michael hastings and the book is called "panic 2012" a great read. thank you so much for joining us and we'll be right back. we've all had those moments. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmember you can expect some help. but what you might not expect, is you can get all this with a prepaid card. spends like cash. feels like membership. i've got two tickets to paradise!l set? pack your bags, we'll leave tonight. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dolla
the measure pulls together a number of things that president obama proposed and could put senate majority leader harry reid in a difficult position, a long time gun advocate, and says he may allow this to go to a vote and an amendment process, could wind up watering it down before it it gets to the house, megyn. >> megyn: now we have the full force of the president's reelection team, no less, out there pushing for support for this and other measures that are backed by the white house. and they are targeting democratic lawmakers in particular who are not on board yet with the dianne feinstein proposal, but would like them to be, so anything could happen. i want to ask about something we saw earlier when dianne feinstein unveiled this proposal. she had props, you know the pictures of these guns, they look like pretty serious weapons, there are no handguns or rifles there, correct? >> well, now what? we actually just got a listing of the specific weapons that were there from our track senior capital hill producer. he was able to get us a list of the weapons and it does seem to include some h
senator from massachusetts, elizabeth warren and republican senator john mccain. >>> president obama's second term barely underway. a lot of political buzz about 2016 and the next presidential election and some of the things happening fuelling that buzz. you have hillary clinton's testimony about the terrorist attack in benghazi, libya adding to the speculation about whether or not she is going to run. some consider clint's five hour confrontation as a sign of things to come. and then you have vice president joe biden shaking hands, jogging along the parade route after the inauguration, was he trying to show he is pretty fit enough to be president in four years? joining us to talk about all of this anna navarra and larry, the director for the center for paul acs at the university of virginia. larry, i want to start off with you. a lot of people say we might be seeing a preview of 2016. folks i have talked to say bill clinton making sure there are no barack obamas around the corner, clearing the way for his wife. can you see any signs? can you read the tea leaves? >> i think people ar
's an odd turn-around, two years ago we were hearing this from senate minority leader republican mitch mcconnell. >> some have said it was it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny president obama a second term. but the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the white house who won't veto any of these things. >> after that, democrats worried republicans were trying to annihilate the democratic party, in part by trying to destroy unions, the most vivid example of that, wisconsin. the republican governor successfully pushed a bill that stripped collective bargaining rights for most public unions. ohio and michigan followed scott walker's lead with mixed success. and now it seems the tables have turned. now if you believe boehner, the democrats want to annihilate the gop. so the talkback question for you, do you agree with boehner? wil
are on the subject, though, of improving the senate and making ate better place there's a bit of coincidental timing today. president obama has nominated mary jo white, the former u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york for the s.e.c. and about a decade ago played an instrumental role of making senate a slightly better place. why? she investigated a senator of new york accused of a donor, a convicted felon donor. the donor accused of plying the senator and helping the north korean government. she declined to indict him and didn't think that that guy holds up on the stand and referred it to the senate ethics committee. they severely admonished him and then a prosecutor's memo said that it found the accusations against bob torricelli to be materially credible. the party panicked. they forced him out of the party. i think we have a ten-second clip. this is the implosion of bob torricelli ten years ago. here it is. >> when did we become such an unforgiving people? how did we become a society when a person can build credibility your entire life to have it question ed by someone whose wod is o
, if the senate, as expected, confirms john kerry by then. >> john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy and i urge his sped deacon firm mags. >> before leaving, just like her first day on the job four years ago -- >> i am absolutely honored and thrilled beyond words to be here with you. >> clinton is likely to say good-bye to the diplomat she's led and deliver a major speech on international policy. but her last days as america's high-flying top diplomat have been overshadowed by nearly a month of illness, the fallout over the deadly attack in benghazi. >> i think it's inexcusable that you did not know about this and that you did not read these cables. >> and her impassioned defense. >> what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened. >> i don't think it will be part of her legacy. >> beyond benghazi, former secretary of state madeleine albright says clinton did something big for america's foreign policy. >> i think she will be valued greatly for finding other parts than just military power for america the way that we
. >> eric: dana, we talked about this last week, where he said hey, senator, senate democrats, in fact, why don't you take the vote. call for a vote on this and see if you agree with president obama's recommendation and feinstein's recommendations. max baucus, joe manchin and ten others are raided at least "b" plus, if not "a." a lot of these people are "a"s. how do they hand that vote? >> dana: i don't think it will necessarily come to a vote. i do admire the administration for putting biden out there today. a week after president obama signed the executive orders. i thought that maybe that would bebe that. but then when feinstein did her bill today, i guess it's possible that her personal feelings have evolveed over time, as it happened with other politicians. also i think one person's assault weapon is another person's self-defense weapon. what she was talking about in that clip was the ability to defend herself. this is possible that public opinion, though, looks at something that joe biden says where he says, as you point out, don't let your kids play with guns. don't let crazy people
in the united states senate for almost four years, so no, i don't think she's made a very good president. >> and finally, sir, according to a new book, president obama call called the widow of one of the people who died in benghazi, sean smith, the day after the attack and said, promise to avenge the deaths of americans. do you believe him? >> well, i'll take him as his word. but you know, that was another curious question i would like to ask secretary clinton is why when those bodies were coming home, she went up to tyrone woods' father and said we were going to bring this guy who created this video to justice. what happens what was that about? they're just trying to continue to perpetuate this false narrative. this wasn't caused by the fact that al-qaeda was on the rise. they're misleading the american public. >> thank you. >>> still to come, we're facing some of the coldest temperatures in this country. some scientists say it's due to global warming. plus, apple's shares plunging today and manti te'o admits he lied, so is he telling the truth now? try running four.ning a restaurant is
. and an underground nuclear test will not directly threaten the u.s., but it will raise the stakings for the obama administration. >>> new poll numbers indicate new jersey mayor cory booker leading frank lautenberg in a hypothetical democratic primary for the u.s. senate. according to the latest quinnipiac poll, booker leads 51 to 30. lautenberg has not said whether he'll run for re-election next year. and booker is, quote, still exploring the idea of a senatorial bid. >>> all right. up next, a republican rift. we're taking a deep dive into the power struggle going on right now within the gop. it has to do with what's going on down in charlotte and the rnc. you're watching "the daily rundown," only on msnbc. bster is hitting the streets to tell real people about our new 15 under $15 menu! oh my goodness... oh my gosh, this looks amazing... [ male announcer ] 15 entrees under $15! it's our new maine stays! seafood, chicken, and more! ooh! the tilapia with roasted vegetables. i'm actually looking at the wood grilled chicken with portobello wine sauce. that pork chop was great. no more fast food frid
to be his confirmation is all but assured. senator kerry did mention the use of drones. i thought this was really interesting. let's replay the sound from earlier this morning. >> president obama and every one of us here knows that american foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployments alone. we cannot allow the extraordinary good that we do to save and change lives, to be eclipsed entirely by the role that we have had to play since september 11th. a role that was thrust upon us. is that a sign that it's looking more seriously at the after effects, the notion that drones may radicalize certain populations of a country? what -- how did you interpret that? >> well, in some ways i think you have to ask the strigs that directly, but a statement like that may be as much a reflection on how our foreign policy is interpreted or analyzed as much as it is a commentary on strategy. obviously, the drone program has been an effect ti tool or tactic, but even with that kind of capacity, we also immediate to make sure that we have all measures of our foreign policy and security policy
happening again, senator. >> reporter: when clinton spoke of her four fallen colleagues, the pain, the memories were still raw. >> i stood by president obama as the marines carried the flag-draped caskets off the planes at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers. >> reporter: and clinton did not hesitate to shoulder the blame. >> i said many times, i take the responsibility. >> reporter: that did little to quiet some republicans, who wanted to know how this could have happened. >> had i been president at the time, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> reporter: the secretary fought back, aggressively defending comments made by u.n. ambassador susan rice five days after the attack. >> a very simple phone call to these individuals would have ascertained immediately, there was no protest. >> with all due respect, the fact is, we have four dead americans. was it because of a protest? or because of guys out for a walk that decided to go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> reporter: a
